(like I said before, they remain in the same forest as always- I merely happen to enjoy procuring different featured images 😉)
Menni here! Enni’s and Genni’s parts finally joined – which was a HUGE relief to me. You would not BELIEVE how hard it was to keep their stories even remotely synchronized!
Here are links to the previous parts (if you don’t read them, you will be VERY confused, so I strongly suggest that you do): Part I: Enni, Part II: Genni
M: YOUR STORIES HAVE FINALLY JOINED!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
G: Hooray!!! 🥳🥳🥳
M: Henceforth, reactions can be given on a first-come-first-served basis, but I won’t give a new scenario until you’ve both reacted.
Ok: Genni, Anderton, and Zajki have just walked into the hall where Enni, Commie, the queen, and Rose Fairy are. Enni is shaking Rose Fairy “COME ON GET YOUR HOT BOYFRIEND!!!” Enni yells.
“Did I miss something?” Genni asks.
“Why does EVERYONE want me to get married?” Anderton (who is a frog at the moment) demands.
What do you do?
G: “I am extremely confused.”
M: *understandable XD*
G: *both me and my character who is still me 😂*
M: *come on Enni, react!*
G: *Hurry up!*
E: sorry sorry
E: “Genni!” I cry, “you’re here!”
“Oh, this is your friend?” Commie asks. “Pleased to meet you — I’m Common Sense Fairy.”
“You got the job, then?” Prince Anderton asks her. Commie nods and starts explaining.
Queen Samarsa has a bit of a one-track mind. “Is this friend married?”
Zajki (the dragon) is chortling again.
What do you do?
E: I cough
E: “what about the lovely rose fairy here?”
G: “I’m still confused; what job? And how did you get here, Enni?”
E: “I was looking for you! and I have NO idea…”
G: “I found this frog who claims to be prince Anderton and wanted to confirm he is, because to break the curse I have to marry him.”
E: “you?” I exclaim, “only you?”
At this point Commie and Anderton both get impatient
“No,” Anderton starts, “see-”
“I wanted to become Common Sense Fairy instead of Lily Fairy-” Commie explains.
“And I can marry anyone but after my mom’s tried for so long I’m not super hopeful-” Anderton continues
“I lobbied for the position of Common Sense Fairy for YEARS-” Commie adds
“It’s simple really,” Anderton explains, “transformation spells are always broken by an act of love-”
“And when I finally got it-”
“But I haven’t met the girl I want to marry-“
G: *typing, typing, typing*
G: “Hang on!!! One at a time, please?”
“But I’ve tried so HARD!” Queen Samarsa protests, ignoring you.
Rose Fairy finally wakes up “Prince Anderton!” she squeals, blushing.
“QUIET!” Anderton and Commie yell simultaneously.
What do you do?
E: I shove rose fairy in the prince’s face
E: “MARRY HER”
“NO!” Anderton yells.
“YES!” Queen Samarsa yells.
“I’m not sure if I should be insulted or flattered that no one’s considered me as an option…” Commie says.
E: “stop being selfish – do you want to not be a frog or not?”
G: Ummm, I’m still here guys. Anything I can do?
E: “you know what: I wash my hands off this – marry who you want, prince, it doesn’t matter to me”
“I DO want to not be a frog,” Anderson answers Enni, “but I’d far liefer *it means “rather”* be a frog than marry someone I don’t love.”
“Exactly!” Commie exclaims. “And thanks for the offer, uh – Genni, right? – but unless you can find Anderton an actually decent bride-”
Queen Samarsa is looking at Commie in a whole new light. “You ARE a marriageable young lady!”
“Oh, no” Commie and Anderton groan
E: I facepalm
E: “okay, I give up. figure out your love problems.”
G: “WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT IS GOING ON?!?” I yell *hence the all caps XD*
Prince Anderton and Commie look at each other. “Ok, I know HER half,” Anderton says, pointing to Genni.
“And I know hers,” Commie adds, pointing to Enni. “Let’s take turns explaining, shall we?”
Anderton nods. “You go first.”
“Ok,” Commie says, “here’s what I know: Enni, through no fault of her own, ended up meeting my jerk brother Pixie Dude.”
Anderton groans. “The poor girl.”
“Exactly,” Commie continues. “I rescued her from this tragic plight and in repayment started trying to help her find Genni. We had some trouble with a seeing spell and therefore came here for Queen Samarsa’s advice. By the time we got the spell fixed, though, you lot had already arrived. That’s my part – what’s yours?” she asks Anderton.
G: “I also met pixie dude! Were you two the fairies that were chasing him?”
“No,” Commie laughs, “though if I hadn’t been busy with Enni I totally would have been. Those were his ex-girlfriends, Bumblebee, River, and Sycamore Fairy. And I’m curious, so tell your story already, Anderton.”
“Well, first I got kidnapped by a witch and turned into a frog,” Anderton begins. “I was then teleported to a pond in the witches’ territory, where I met Genni. We started traveling here so that my mom could help Genni find her friend – who must be Enni. We met Zajki the dragon along the way.”
G: “That’s about right!”
G: *oh, ennnnniiiiii….*
E: sorry today has been very rough
E: we escorted Justin across the mountain pass when he was driving to Spokane to go back to college
E: and so there was no service
E: we just got home after 8 hours
G: That makes sense. Good luck to Justin!
E: I have nothing to say XD
E: also I’ve been in the car all day because justin’s leaving so I don’t really have signal
*ok well then I’ll just have the characters keep it going XD*
Rose Fairy is still blushing and giggling and staring at Prince Anderton (even though he’s a frog. Apparently he’s a cute frog.).
Commie and Anderton have gone off into this really long and complicated discussion about witches and transformation spells. You only understand like one word in ten they’re saying. (“Obviously physiphantistical hexes need brakpoint potential, but to assimatorivly inmagle them with the original hex…”)
Queen Samarsa is trying to figure out whether Genni, Rose Fairy, or Commie is the best potential bride for Anderton.
Zajki is chortling.
A very brave footman sticks his head in the door and asks, “Would you care for refreshments, Your Majesties and Your Highness and Fairies and, er, Maiden and… Sir Dragon?”
G: “Yes, I would love something. They all might be too busy to answer, though.”
“Ahhh, I see,” the footman says. “Quite so. What can I fetch you? Tea, perhaps, or lemonade, and there are some delightful little cakes prepared for visitors…”
E: oh those two messages were meant to send yesterday in the car 😛
M: I wondered XD
G: *reaaaaally bad service 😂* “Lemonade and cakes sounds wonderful, thank you.”
“Excellent,” says the footman. “They will be served in a moment.” He prudently withdraws as Queen Samarsa starts trying to intrude on Anderton’s conversation.
What do you do?
G: “If I may be so rude as to interrupt, May I ask: why are Rose and Commie your choices, Your Majesty? I have nothing against them, I’m merely curious.”
Anderton and Commie stop talking long enough to crack up. Rose Fairy looks insulted. Queen Samarsa sputters indignantly.
“You’re a ‘choice,’ as you so ELOQUENTLY put it, as well,” Zajki informs you. “Any unmarried lady between the ages of, say, fourteen to twenty-one is a potential bride for Anderton in the eyes of the queen. I would say,” he continues, as Queen Samarsa tries to protest and Anderton and Commie crack up again, “that Rose Fairy is the queen’s top pick, due to her beauty and *cough cough* simple nature. You would be next, as a human female who’s not too hard on the eyes. ‘Commie’ would be last because of her good sense. Clear?”
What do you do?
M: *also this time I’m REALLY not doing a new scenario until Enni responds*
G: *HURRY UP ENNI!!!!!*
M: *but you can react first if you want XD*
M: *enni you’re here why aren’t you responding?*
G: *oh, okay. I will!*
G: “Yes, that makes much more sense, thank you Zajki. Please continue your delightful conversations, everyone.”
G: *ENNI!!!! PLEASE COME BACK RIGHT NOW!!!!*
M: *maybe she’s busy 😛*
M: *she was on for a while…*
G: *ENNI! STOP BEING BUSY*
E: sorry, school started again this week XD
E: I am very grateful that I’m “married”
M: *ah so that’s what happened XD*
Anderton and Commie, obeying Genni, go back to their conversation. (“So if quikquikquik shatterbricks can affect quakquak fundamentals…”)
The queen decides to pick a girl first and convince Anderton later. “So, Miss Genni, have you ever wanted to be a princess?”
The footman comes back with refreshments, which might or might not save Genni from having to answer.
What do you do?
E: I take something that looks like a lemonade
M: *we’ll wait for Genni to keep going, since she’s just been asked a question XD*
G: As I grab my lemonade *?* I reply, “well, I think pretty much everyone has dreamed about being royalty, so I can honestly say yes.”
“How lovely!” the queen beams. Zajki chuckles in your ear.
“Bad move” Commie mouths at you. Anderton *wow I almost forgot he was a frog XD* nods in agreement.
What do you do?
G: I grin sheepishly with a ‘just trying to be honest’ look
The queen turns to include Rose Fairy in the conversation. “What about you, my dear?”
Rose Fairy blushes and giggles and nods.
G: “I will say, Rose Fairy has much more experience with royalty that pretty much anyone else in this room – except the royals themselves, of course. I think she would make an exceptionally good princess.”
“NO!” Anderton yells. Then he pauses. “Actually, wait. Can I abdicate and make Rose Fairy… nevermind, that’s a bad idea.”
Commie laughs. “The kingdom would fall as soon as a cute enemy showed up.”
Queen Samarsa frostily ignores them. You can practically SEE her crossing Commie off her mental brides-for-Anderton list.
E: I can see the rose fairy’s face slowly fall
“Sorry,” Anderton adds, feeling a little bad.
Rose Fairy bursts into tears and flees the room.
“What’d I do?” Anderton asks.
E: I groan and rise to follow her
Rose Fairy runs back in, still sobbing. “WHY DOES NO ONE LIKE ME???”
E: “aw, plenty of people like you,” I assure her
E: “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you”
“Really?” Rose Fairy stops crying and beams. “Aww, thank you!” She hugs you. “Do you think… uh… you know, Pixie Dude still likes me?”
E: I grimace
E: “I don’t think Pixie Dude likes anybody,” I tell her honestly
E: “but why let that get you down? There’s so many people better than Pixie Dude!”
Rose Fairy bursts into tears again.
M: *we’ll wait for Genni now
M: *where is she?
E: don’t know XD
G: “Maybe we can find a nice pixie for Rose Fairy? I’m afraid I don’t know any other than pixie dude.”
“There are plenty,” Commie starts to explain, taking a sip of ‘lemonade.’ Then she interrupts herself to spit it out. “What is IN that??”
(If you’ve been furtively sipping your lemonade, now is the time to turn into a butterfly.)
What do you do?
G: I suddenly turn into a butterfly.
“Uh-oh,” Commie and Anderton say simultaneously.
“What is going ON?” the queen shrieks.
M: *now we have to wait for Enni, so I can find out if she’s a butterfly or not XD*
“Oho, a plot twist,” Zajki rumbles, now flying in the air next to you (since he can’t sit on your shoulder anymore, now that you’re a butterfly).
M: *ok now I’m REALLY waiting for Enni XD*
G: *and I’ll just flutter frantically like the crazy butterfly I am*
E: I throw my lemonade to the floor
E: given that I only drank a bit, I sprout wings
“This is not ideal,” Commie says.
“Nope,” Anderton agrees. (Rose Fairy faints again.)
Suddenly that witch who Enni met way back at the beginning appears! “That will teach you to interrupt my naps!” she cackles.
“Wait — that’s the witch that cursed me!” Anderton exclaims.
“Small world,” Commie comments, “she cursed me once too.”
“Yes, well, you both interrupted my naps when you were children.” The witch sniffs haughtily. “Behold — my revenge!!”
What do you do?
E: I gasp
E: “uh, guys, you’re not gonna believe this but…THIS IS MY WITCH TOO.”
“Whaaaat?” Commie and Anderton both say. “No way!”
“Vile nap-interrupter,” the witch huffs. “I am not YOUR witch: you are MY annoying little enemy who I will shortly squash like a fly. A fruit fly? A housefly? A horsefly?” The witch starts muttering to herself about different types of flies.
M: *and now we’ll wait for Genni*
G: I continue to flutter around everyone, before “attacking” the witch (aka, flying so close to her face she can’t see anything.)
“Ack!” the witch sputters. Instead of trying to shoo Genni away (like a normal person would), she turns Genni into a statue. “There!”
Before anyone else can react (and if you think you could have, well, sorry – Commie’s faster than you), Commie exclaims “This has gone FAR ENOUGH!” and turns Genni back into a human.
“How dare you!” The witch turns Genni into a cabinet (why, I’m not sure).
Commie turns her back into a human. The witch turns her into a cat. And so on. In the space of sixty seconds, poor Genni becomes a human, a cloak, a human, a door, a human, an apple, a human, a horsefly, a human, a horse, a human, a china doll, and a human.
At this point the witch completely loses it and turns Commie into a statue, while cackling madly. “THERE!” She also turns Genni back into a butterfly for good measure.
What do you do?
G: I forget to fly from shock and fall to the ground (luckily I’m about a foot away from it).
E: I quickly pick Genni up so nobody steps on her
“Quick, Enni, wake up Rose Fairy so she can turn me back,” Statue-Commie whispers. “I can’t do magic like this.”
The outraged Prince Anderton is berating the witch (and seriously considering attacking her, frog or no frog). Meanwhile his mom has also fainted.
What do you do?
E: I shake rose fairy frantically
E: “STOP FAINTING OH MY GOSH.”
G: I just lie on Enni’s hand.
Rose Fairy doesn’t wake up, probably because the witch turned HER into a statue practically before Enni had a chance to yell. You hear a loud roar and Zajki grows to full size again, flames leaking from his fanged mouth. “Face me, witch!” he rumbles.
“Zajkighoeklmsoneiqeutrihsinfmeirutredduclomnupzer!” the witch stammers.
What do you do?
“What the HECK?” Commie and Anderton say simultaneously.
“Ooh, my head,” the queen moans, having been awakened by Zajki’s roar.
G: I’m still being held by Enni cause I’m a freaking butterfly and what else can I do?!?
E: I quickly shove the queen behind her throne so nobody turns HER into stone
E: though maybe that wouldn’t be such a loss…
“Hey!” Commi exclaims, as the dragon and the witch begin to fight, “I might actually know what’s going on!”
G: *you’re doing very impressive things with one hand, Enni XDD*
G: Now I can flutter around Commie as if trying to say ‘WHAT!!???!!!’
M: *fairies can understand you as a butterfly, by the way*
“This dragon is called Zajkighoeklmsoneiqeutrihsinfmeirutredduclomnupzer!” Commie says.
“THAT’S why the name sounded familiar!” Anderton exclaims. “Doesn’t he have a death feud with some witch — oh!”
“Exactly, it must be THIS witch!” Commie continues excitedly. “Uh-oh, you non-stone people should get under cover,” she adds as Zajki starts breathing fire at the witch (who is turning various objects into attacking vampire bats).
What do you do?
E: I hide with the queen
E: I also repeatedly pinch her so she doesn’t faint again
G: Fly on top of Commie’s head(since we can talk) (and she can hide with Enni and the queen)
M: *Commie’s a statue, remember*
G: *no that’s Rose Fairy*
M: *they both are*
(Meanwhile Anderton has hidden under a chair)
G: *she can just still talk?*
E: *it’s fairy magic rights XD*
M: *ehhh, lots of statues can talk in this world. And enchanted people can often talk anyway*
M: *but to get back to the subject of Genni hiding…*
G: I’ll hide on Commie’s back.
G: Where the witch can’t see me.
It’s a good thing you managed to hide SOMEWHERE, because if you’d waited any longer I would’ve been forced to seriously injure you in the explosion. It’s unclear to you what CAUSED said explosion, but when the smoke clears the witch is a pile of ash (and Zajki looks very pleased with himself).
“Huh,” Anderton says. “I guess that works.”
G: I climb/fly up to Commie’s head.
G: *wait, will all the witch’s magic be reversed??*
M: *nope not yet*
M: *but good question!*
M: *enni. Enni. Enni?*
G: *aaaand she’s gone*
E: I continue pinching the queen
She manages to faint in spite of you pinching her.
“Did I harm anyone?” Zajki rumbles.
“You harmed the witch,” Commie points out.
E: “ARGH!” I scream at the queen
E: “what is wrong with you?”
“Shush,” she hisses, “I haven’t really fainted, I’m trying to make my son be the hero so that he’ll pay attention to all the marriageable young ladies in this room! Now stop pinching me.”
E: “…why me.”
“Hmph.” is the queen’s only response.
Anderton and Commie are busy talking about ways to get everyone back to their normal state. At least, you THINK that’s what they’re talking about. (“So to reform initial phgiosy, a subject of lokical ability…”)
G: I just hang around Commie and listen to her and Anderton talk. But then I realized I should ask her to tell Anderton not to accidentally eat me, because I’m a bug and he’s a frog.
M: *sooo… did you ACTUALLY ask or do you just think you should?*
G: *oh, right, I asked XD*
Commie relays the message and Anderton says “Well, duh. But thanks for the reminder. Good thinking.” Aaand they go back to their unintelligible conversation.
G: Dum dee doo…
M: *just waiting for Enni now XD*
E: I shake the queen
E: then I decide that actually, she can stay unconscious
“Right,” Zajki rumbles. “As the only being in this room with any sense, it is now my duty to tie up loose ends and send these two meddling maidens on their way. First, I will restore certain cursed individuals to their original state.” He chants “Nuktor mesta, nuktor mesta, nuktor mesta; rotkun atsem, rotkun atsem, rotkun atsem; photosynthesis.” Everyone goes back to normal: Commie and Rose Fairy are no longer statues, Genni is no longer a butterfly, Enni no longer has wings (and you’re not beautiful anymore either if you even remember that). Wait, did I say ‘everybody’? Nevermind – Anderton is still a frog.
“Oh good, you’re all normal again!” Anderton says. He pauses. “Wait – then why am I still a frog?”
E: “maybe this is your natural state of being,” I suggest
“Incorrect, guess again,” Zajki chuckles.
E: “just tell me.”
Anderton suddenly turns pale. (Didn’t know frogs could do that, did you?) “Oh, no,” he says.
G: *maybe he just turns a sickly shade of green…*
“Ohhhhhhh…” Commie has clearly realized whatever it is too.
Anderton facepalms. “WHY ME? WHY ME?”
G: “Um, does that mean you still have to marry someone?”
G: “Like, now?”
“Precisely,” Zajki rumbles, pleased with himself.
“As a dragon, I can perform the ceremony,” he adds.
G: “Oh boy.”
“The wedding,” Zajki huffs. “Obviously.”
E: “your wedding.”
The queen suddenly comes awake. “Wedding?”
“Well, pick a girl, Anderton,” Zajki says.
“Don’t worry, Genni, I won’t pick you,” Anderton reassures you. “I mean, no offense or anything.”
E: “..I am obviously out of the running.”
G: “I have nothing against you personally, but yeah that might be best.”
Commie has turned a rather interesting color. “Okay, so not Enni, and not Genni, and you’ve already refused to marry Rose Fairy…”
“Huh,” Anderton says.
“Precisely,” Zajki rumbles, looking even smugger.
E: “don’t other girls exist?”
Commie rolls her eyes, getting her normal color back. “Ok, first off, Enni’s right-“
E: “oh yeah I am.”
“Oh yes,” Zajki says, “but there are other reasons.”
Anderton turns pink. (Didn’t know frogs could do that either, did you?)
“Waaaaaiiit a second…” Commie says.
E: I gasp
“HEY WHAT ARE YOU INSINUATING?” both of them yell at once.
E: “gee you don’t have to be so touchy!” I exclaim
“Sorry,” they say sheepishly.
E: “anderton — can I call you andy — you’re turning a shade of fuschia though.”
“Yes, you can call me Andy. And I am NOT!”
“Yes you are. You’re in love,” Zajki says pointedly. “And the two of you have been driving the whole forest crazy with your complete romantic blindness for YEARS, so I think I ought to be praised for finally getting the two of you married. So?”
M: *I have to wait for Genni now, sorry XD*
G: “A Wedding? I love weddings! Drinks all around!!!”
M: *somehow I knew you would say that XDD*
Anderton and Commie look at each other.
“Can we talk somewhere private?” Commie asks. Anderton nods.
“Why bother?” Zajki snorts. “Just speak in your usual technicality-ridden mumbo-jumbo, and no one will have any idea what you’re saying.”
“He’s got a point,” Anderton and Commie say simultaneously. And they start talking in their usual unintelligible fashion. (“If lonjigo qwurtkun is actually…”)
G: *in that little subconscious mind twin part of your brain? 😂*
G: I just stare blankly at the two of them, while the queen is giving me an interesting look for my previous comment.
Rose Fairy (who woke up when she was un-statued) has finally managed to grasp the situation. “He’s… not gonna marry me?” Her lower lip begins to tremble.
“No offense intended,” Anderton tells her, “but no. I’m going to marry Commie.”
G: “It’s okay, Rose. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a wonderful pixie or person just right for you!”
“Aw, thanks!” Anderton and Commie say simultaneously, beaming.
Rose Fairy looks as if she’s about to go into hysterics.
Zajki is not fond of hysterics. “FOOTMAN!” he bellows.
The very brave footman from earlier enters. “Yes, Sir Dragon?”
Zajki points one claw at Rose Fairy. “That young fairy is in need of some comfort and a ride home. See to it.”
“Yes, Sir Dragon.” The footman helps Rose Fairy to her feet, offering an encouraging smile.
Rose Fairy (no longer anywhere close to hysterics) blushes and giggles. (Did I mention that the footman is young and rather good-looking?) Rose Fairy and the footman walk off arm in arm.
“Finally,” Zajki rumbles. “That flirtatious nitwit was getting on my nerves.”
G: “Well that was fast. Maybe she’s found someone already?”
*and then we went into a long discussion about a storm the night before. I’ll skip that, shall I?*
“Yeah, maybe,” Commie says thoughtfully.
“No more backstory,” Zajki snaps. “I consider Rose Fairy’s loose ends sufficiently tied up, so let’s move on to the wedding.”
G: “Okay! Commie, I’d be happy to help with whatever you need.”
M: *gonna wait for Enni before I continue but aww you’re so sweet*
E: “yayyy we finally got that over with,” I groan
“Aw Genni, you’re so sweet!” Commie exclaims. “So when should we-“
“Now,” Zajki says on no uncertain terms. “You two are getting married NOW so that this can finally end.”
“Hey!” the two of them protest.
The queen blanches. “But there has to be a ceremony — I haven’t even invited any guests yet and we’ll need sooo many — and there’s the question of a suitable dress and bridesmaids and a cake and-“
“Alright, we’re getting married now,” Commie and Anderton decide.
“But-“ the queen protests, “but, but, she isn’t even wearing a veil! It’s TRADITIONAL!”
E: “can she faint on command?” I ask
“The queen or me?” Commie asks, yanking a white curtain off a nearby window.
G: “Probably the Queen. Do you want me to help you turn that into a more veil-like thing?”
“I think I’ve got it, but thanks,” Commie says, rearranging the curtain over her head. “Actually, could you grab me that flower wreath over there?”
The queen, beginning to realize that Anderton and Commie really DO intend to get married right now, starts to sputter in protest.
G: I run over, grab the wreath, and begin to arrange it with the veil on Commie’s head.
M: *enni? (just checking to make sure you’ve seen this)*
M: *maybe your message is just taking forever to send 🤷♀️*
E: I clap a hand over the queen’s mouth
“Mmmph!” the queen complains
M: *where’d everyone go?*
G: I finish setting up Commie’s veil.
“Thanks, Genni!” Commie says.
The queen is still trying to break free.
“How lovely,” Zajki says. “I will now begin the marriage ceremony.”
Zajki starts to begin the marriage ceremony then pauses. “This is ridiculous. Prince Anderton, would you marry Common Sense Fairy even if you weren’t a frog?”
“Of course,” Anderton answers immediately.
“Good.” Zajki roars “ENCRYPTION!” and suddenly Anderton is human again. He’s actually quite cute (you can see why Rose Fairy would like him) – I think it must be a perk of being a prince XD. His hair is fashionably messy, which could mean “hey look, I’m fashionably messy!” …or it could mean “THERE IS IMPORTANT STUDYING TO BE DONE PEOPLE (plus I used all my combs as bookmarks)”
“What?” Anderton asks, noticing everyone staring at him. He looks down at himself. “Oh. Well, uh, thanks, Zajki.”
E: “yay, you’re a human”
Commie also exclaims in delight.
Anderton grins. “It is nice to be human again.”
“And NOW,” Zajki says imperiously, “the WEDDING.”
G: I’m rocking on my toes from excitement.
Anderton and Commie take each other’s hands as Zajki begins the ceremony. (The whole thing looks SIGNIFICANTLY less weird now that Anderton’s human XD)
G: *uh, yeah. 😜*
G: I’ll just keep standing nearby.
G: You know, this whole thing reminds me of a Dragon’s Kiss scene..
G: *oh, a book in the Frog Princess series (also slightly ironic)*
M: *oh, those! I read them once… I should probably read them again XD they were fun!*
M: *and if Enni hasn’t responded by Saturday, I’m going to assume she chose to just stand around, and will therefore finish the wedding without her 😈*
G: *Yeah! Like all books the characters occasionally get annoying, but they’re pretty good!*
E: I will stand too XD
Zajki completes the wedding ceremony (which sounds familiar but weird at the same time) and ends with “congratulations, you may kiss the bride.”
A minute later Zajki gets impatient and adds “congratulations, now you may STOP kissing the bride.”
“Sorry,” Commie and Anderton say sheepishly. The queen is still sputtering various protests. Anderton notices and looks at her. “…sorry about not waiting for a huge ceremony, Mom.”
“I could let her throw one for my coronation,” Commie suggests, “since I’m a princess now.”
G: I move over to the queen. “She has a very good idea, your Majesty. Would you like to start planning now?”
Queen Samarsa blinks twice and says “Well… all right. Now, I think one month should be long enough for preparation, and the official coronation can be held in the Grand Ballroom, but there must be an outdoor ceremony for the common people to attend, and…”
G: “That sounds wonderful, but maybe we should help Commie, I mean Princess Commie, and Prince Anderton settle first?”
“Don’t be silly,” the queen says, “they’ll take care of all that. I’m sure they already have plans. Oh, and welcome to the family, Commie, by the way.”
“…thanks, Your Majesty?” Commie says.
“Oh, call me Mom, please.” Queen Samarsa smiles brightly. “Now, dear, would you like your coronation gown to be white, gold, or blue?”
G: I look expectantly at Commie.
“Blue,” Commie says firmly. “But before we dive into planning — Genni, Enni, would you like to stay for the coronation or go home now?”
G: “I would love to stay if you don’t mind.”
“Great!” Anderton grins.
“How about you, Enni?” Commie prompts.
M: *which means that now we have to wait for Enni*
E: I consider this for a second
E: “when’s the coronation?”
“One month,” the queen says irritably, still muttering about details, “weren’t you listening?”
E: I bite my lip
E: “oof, that’s kind of a long time…I think I’ll go back.”
“Can’t say I blame you,” Commie admits. She is being forcibly measured by some dressmakers that the queen just called in. “Genni can still stay without you, I’ll just have to make sure I collect enough blood to send her back when it’s over.”
G: “What?!? Blood?!?”
“Relax,” Anderton reassures you, “we just need a drop. See, the quantiphysical erosystems of-“
“Normal speech, Andy,” Commie reminds him. “Genni isn’t me.”
“Oh right.” Anderton explains again, in normal language this time. “In order to establish a connection to your world, we need blood from two separate people of that world. Scholars are unsure why exactly. So, in order to send you and Enni back, we need a drop or two of blood from each of you, and then an easy one-time tunnel from our world to yours can be created. That better?”
G: “Oh, yeah. Much better.”
“So we can send you back anytime,” Commie adds, “but if Enni goes first we need to save a drop of her blood in order to send YOU back after the coronation.”
“Excuse me – can’t I just TELL you my measurements??” Commie asks the dressmakers, getting frustrated. “I make my own clothes, so I should know everything you’ll need.”
The dressmakers are apparently scandalized that a future princess would make her own clothes.
G: I just stand off to the side and attempt to hide my laughter.
G: MY PLAYLIST IS DONE!!!
G: Should we just post our playlists, and then next weekend post our reactions to each others?
M: *no, I think we should wait, right?*
M: *to what?*
E: what you said
M: Back to the roleplay:
Zajki is getting impatient again. “Is Enni leaving or not? Hurry up!”
“Sheesh,” Commie mutters under her breath, “ever heard of the word patience?”
M: *guys come on, the sooner we finish this the sooner we can have normal conversations again XD*
G: *what am I supposed to say?!?*
E: exactly XD
M: *I don’t know, figure something out. 😜 Enni, you can say you want to leave or you think Zajki is an odious meddler in other people’s affairs, or either of you can try to rescue Commie from the dressmakers, or…*
Nobody listened to me — big surprise XD
G: Oh, here’s my playlist.
E: I need access 😛
G: Blehhhhh 🙄🙄🙄
G: Okay, should work now!
G: I can guarantee there will be one song that’s on both of ours 😜
E: I actually don’t think so XD
E: I was surprised epiphany wasn’t there 😉
E: I think I need to update mine since evermore came out…
E: here’s mine!
E: and to continue the roleplay…
E: “hmm…well maybe if genni’s staying, I’ll stay too…”
E: I remind myself that I’m literally never going to see a fairy coronation again
E: “okay, I’ll stay!”
Zajki looks ready to start setting things afire. “MAKE UP YOUR MIND!”
“Oh good grief, she just said she’ll stay,” Commie points out
“Then stay she shall,” Zajki growls. “I’ll stay here too, just to see to it.”
“Well, we’ll be delighted to have you, Enni!” Anderton says brightly. “And you too, Zajki.”
E: “what an impatient dragon,” I mutter under my breath
Zajki hears you. “IMPATIENT?? I AM NOT- well, perhaps a little,” he admits.
E: I nod sagaciously
Commie and Anderton simultaneously repress snorts.
The queen is still in full planning flow. “Oh- Enni’s staying too? So then we’ll have two attendants for Commie — the dress mustn’t be white then, that would look simply terribly on Enni-“
E: I gasp
“I’m a queen, dear,” Queen Samarsa reminds you. “I am entitled to be as rude as I would like.”
“Sorry,” Anderton mouths at you
E: “well, I’m a queen too,” I remind her
E: I wonder whether being a queen was part of what I said when I claimed to be married…
(It was) “Ahhhh yes…” Zajki rumbles, looking amused. “A ‘queen.’”
“Oh well,” the queen says, ignoring Zajki. “I’m older and queen of a larger realm, therefore I outrank you. Now, for shoes — high heels, flats, or sandals?”
“Flats,” Commie says immediately. “I’m not wearing heels for an hours-long ceremony.”
E: I nod
E: “good choice…I would definitely know.”
“Fine, flats it shall be,” the queen says. “Now, Genni, I haven’t asked your opinion yet — should there be lace trim on the dresses?”
G: *I FORGOT ABOUT EPIPHANY!!!!!😱😱😱😱😱*
G: “Well, what will the color and style be?”
M: *you’re better with clothes than I am, so you tell me (and then I make the queen say it XD) 😜*
G: *okay, this style/color dress*
G: *with this style sleeves (why does this model look like a mixture of Adele and Emma Watson?!??)*
G: *actually, the lower dress style with the upper fabric*
M: *i knew I could trust your fashion sense 😊*
G: *aww, I try 😁*
M: *and you’re totally right about that model XDDD*
G: *SHE HAS EMMA WATSON’S SMILE!!!! And yet she also looks like Adele. It’s shocking!!!*
M: *i know, right???*
The queen describes (in extensive detail that I’m not going to write out) the dress Genni just selected. “And there would be plenty of gold embellishments,” she adds, “which is why I’m wondering about the lace… it might seem like too much… ooooh, perhaps we could have diamonds sewn into the skirts! Or emeralds?”
G: “In my opinion the diamonds and emeralds would be too much. The gold and lace would be beautiful, though. What do you think, Commie?”
“Hmmm…” Commie says thoughtfully. “I agree with you — the gems would be too much. Of course,” she adds, glancing at one of the dressmakers’ designs, “I think MY dress will be ‘too much’ no matter how I feel about it.”
“Don’t be silly, dear, “ the queen says briskly. “Now, how shall your hair be done? Let me see…”
G: “You’re probably right.” In a confidential voice I add, “If necessary, I can help alter it to tone it down a bit.”
“Thanks sooo much,” Commie whispers back. “With your help, we ought to be able to make it an actually decent dress!”
G: I try to hide my laughter, but the queen manages to notice through her rant.
“What’s so funny?” she asks suspiciously.
G: “Oh, nothing, Your Majesty. What were you saying about flower arrangements?”
Queen Samarsa gives you a very suspicious look but goes back to discussing flower arrangements.
“Nice save,” Anderton whispers, grinning.
G: “I try.” I reply, also grinning.
At this point, I realized that Together was going to be much too long for just one part. So, come back tomorrow for Coronation!!! (and the day after that for the part where they actually go home XD)
Anderton and Commie are so cute, aren’t they? 😊
And aren’t you very intrigued by the interspersed conversation about “playlists”? Because that’s also a post series we’re working on 😁 (it might take a while, though. As in a loooooonngg while.)
Hope you enjoyed!
P.S. pro tip: never let Queen Samarsa plan anything (ask me how I know XD)
